Knight Watch (An Alliance Agency Novel Book 1) by Maddie Wade & India Kells – Review by Michelle King

Knight Watch (An Alliance Agency Novel #1)Knight Watch by India Kells
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Kingsley Knight has moved from the UK to the US to become an agent in the newly formed Alliance Agency. He is assigned as the lead investigator on their first case, to rescue Sydney Rutherford, the missing niece of a powerful businessman. When Kingsley and Sydney meet, you can definitely feel the sparks fly between the two. But as they find out that things aren’t quite what they seem to be, will they survive the dangers and be able to figure out what is going on between them? Can Kingsley keep Sydney safe when his personal feelings get involved?

This is an intense, action packed, suspenseful story that you won’t want to put down! These two authors together are quickly becoming favorites of mine. I easily connected with these characters and quickly became emotionally involved with all of them. I am looking forward to what comes next in this exceptional series!

Supernatural Love Stories in the Absurd: Four Book Collection by Gwyn McNamee writing as D.P. Payne – Review by Michelle King

Supernatural Love Stories in the Absurd: Four Book CollectionSupernatural Love Stories in the Absurd: Four Book Collection by D.P. Payne
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is an absolutely must read collection for any PNR fan! As I’ve come to expect from anything I have ready by this author, these stories are so unique and well written, you definitely won’t want to put this book down! D.P. Payne makes you want to believe in the supernatural!

Parched is the story about a man who was so greedy, he was cursed to be a wendigo for all eternity and hunt down other greedy souls and feed from them as punishment for his evil ways. When he comes across a completely black aura, what could it possibly mean? Who could this woman be? What could she be so greedy for that her aura would be this dark? Prepare yourself for a hot and steamy, panty melting story as you find out these answers!

Cursed is the story of an Egyptian pharaoh and a modern day archeologist who have three days to break a 4000 year old curse. This kind of makes me want to change professions! How else am I ever going to meet a man like Wyre???

Spirited is probably my favorite out of the four stories in this book! It’s pretty much my lifelong dream to by old plantation homes and restore them to their former glory! And throw in a few ghosts and a super hot love story??? Yep, dream come true! Margot and Blake stole my heart in this one!

Loched is definitely the coolest of all! The mystery of the Loch ness monster has been solved! At least I’d like to think so after reading this one!

Each of these stories is unique and different. You get a bit of heat, a bit of romance, and a whole realm of emotions as you read through them! I fell in love with all of these characters and highly recommend this collection!

Fire & Ice (Spicetopia #3) by Phoebe Alexander – Review by Michelle King

Fire & Ice (Spicetopia #3)Fire & Ice by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fire & Ice is the third book in the Spicetopia series and each book just gets better and better! I highly recommend reading this series in order. In this book, we get the story of Enya and Neve, and they might be my favorite couple yet! The Spicetopia theme park is finally coming to completion and things are really ramping up! It is Enya’s job to promote the park and Neve’s job to keep everyone safe. But someone has plans to keep them both from doing that! This installment is full of action and suspense that keeps you guessing what is going to happen next and who could be behind it all! We also get a good look at some of the park’s attractions and let me tell you….I want to know if this place is a real thing yet and how do I get an invite??? Because this should definitely be a thing!

Phoebe Alexander knocks it out of the “park” once again! I am so glad there is more to this series because I have fallen in love with these characters and this story line! Looking forward to book 4 and where it will take me next!

Evergreen by Mya O’Malley – Review by Michelle King

EvergreenEvergreen by Mya O’Malley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Evergreen is a sweet, emotional love story with so many lessons to teach us! June, the seemingly backwards, shy, and clumsy girl from the animal shelter isn’t really whom she appears to be. She is, but there is much more to her that she keeps hidden from everyone because she is too afraid of being used and hurt if people find out the truth. Graham is the shy but sexy 6th grade teacher who happens upon a mysterious dog and meets June while taking the dog to the shelter. When the two of them and Maxine get together, things get humorous, serious, and at times, emotional.

This was a wonderful story that teaches us how powerfully our pasts can affect our presents. How animals can bring so much joy to our lives and help us heal old and new wounds. It also shows us the important works that local animal shelters do and how much help they need in order to operate in the most beneficial way for the animals.

I enjoyed this book so much! I could picture everything perfectly. The scenes and characters were written so well, the images are fed to you right from the pages. I highly recommend this short and sweet romance to everyone!

Deliciously Sinful LiaisonsDeliciously Sinful Liaisons by L.M. Mountford
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Lord of Lust has mastered the art of writing steamy sexual encounters in this collection of seven sexy stories! There is a bit of something for everyone in this collection. Friends to lovers, menage, vampires, second chance romance…there is some cheating and a couple of the stories end in cliffhangers. I am definitely looking forward to reading more about those couples in future works! If you’re looking for a hot and sexy read to get your blood pumping, look no further! Get ready for your kindle to melt! L.M. Mountford never disappoints.

Deadly Alliance (An Alliance Agency Novel – The Prequel) by Maddie Wade & India Kells – Review by Michelle King

Deadly Alliance: A Fortis/Purgatory Crossover NovelDeadly Alliance: A Fortis/Purgatory Crossover Novel by Maddie Wade
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Maddie Wade and India Kells have both hooked a new reader! This is my first experience with these authors and they definitely did not disappoint! When I first read the title, I honestly didn’t know this was part of two other series of books. I will now be reading those separate series! But Deadly Alliance can be read as a standalone. This story is written flawlessly. It combines two elite Special Forces agencies in Fortis and Purgatory and travels from the US to the UK on a joint mission to catch a serial killer. The characters are spectacular and immediately draw you in to their lives. The connection between Shane and Emme…..whew! Turn the air up because it’s getting a bit hot in here!

This story is filled to the brim with twists and turns that you won’t see coming! Definitely a 5 star read that will keep you turning the pages! I can’t wait to read more from these authors! I’m looking forward to learning more about these characters and their worlds.

Hennessey on the Rocks by Monica DeSimone – Review by Michelle King

Hennessey on the RocksHennessey on the Rocks by Monica DeSimone
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a heart wrenchingly beautiful love story. When you find your true, one and only love at age 5, how can it possibly last a lifetime? That is what Charlie and Johnnie are trying to figure out. They were, are, and always will be the other half of each other. Yin and Yang. Light and darkness. But then again, don’t we all have a bit of darkness in us? This story explores that darker side. Anger, depression, alcoholism, fear. When we find someone who helps us combat those emotions, someone who brings light into our lives, we try to hold on to them in any way we can.

Charlie is that light to Johnnie. They are divorced but their son and Charlie’s daughter hold them together. The problem is they both have secrets and lies that could tear them apart forever, no matter how much love there is between them. The story isn’t all dark…you will instantly fall in love with Charlie’s daughter Abie. She is a 3 year old force of nature! Super smart and mature for her age, she knows just how to make everything better. She was definitely the star of the story. Making you laugh and smile even when you want to cry because your heart is hurting so badly for this family. And just wait until you see the antics she gets up to with the family pets!

This is truly a wonderful story that I feel I am better off for having read it. I highly recommend it and give it a full 5 stars! You don’t want to miss this one. Just be prepared for all the feels!

Matt’s Swirly World: Children’s Book by Madeleine Matthews – Review by Michelle King

Matt's swirly worldMatt’s swirly world by Madeleine Matthews
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Matt’s Swirly World is a beautifully illustrated short story designed to help parents deal with children’s behavioral issues in a healthy way. I think the illustrations will draw children’s attention and give parents a few talking points with their children. I don’t quite think the wording will hold the attention of the younger age range this book was written for, but their parents will understand and use the language to explain what is going on throughout the book. The use of dragons to teach breathing techniques is extremely smart. And I love the game of counting cars to engage the child in something fun and constructive.

Wayward (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 1) by Via Mari – Review by Michelle King

Wayward (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 1)Wayward by Via Mari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Billionaire Bodyguards series is a spin off from the Torzial Affair books, only told from the point of view of the Bodyguards that take care of the Billionaires. In this first book, we learn Jay’s story. He is the head of security and set to own his own division of the company. He met Sasha in the Torzial books and was infatuated at first sight! He hasn’t been able to forget her or get her out of his mind. Sasha is a ballerina and at least in my opinion, a bit of a weak and needy individual. She has extremely low self-esteem and doesn’t believe that anyone could possibly want her for more than a night. Even though I didn’t care for her character, I did enjoy the book immensely! There is action and adventure, travels around the world, and sexual tension that cannot be ignored! We learn so much more about not only Jay and Sasha, but others from the Torzial Affair books. It was extremely interesting to see the events we read about in the last series from a different perspective. Great start to a new series!
